Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-2-26: To cite Hamilton Child's Gazetteer & Business Directory for Rutland County c.1882: " The firm has been in continual operation for the past forty years.... The father Albert W. Gray began the business in a small way... the present proprietors were brought up as boys in the shop & taught to make every part of either wood or metal of every machine manufactured... Many years since they became sole partners in the business...and are widely known through out the whole country as manufacturers of agricultural equipment. They employ about 50 men & make about 1,200 different machines each year." At the time Childs was writing the proprietors were: Albert Y., Eugene W. & Leonidas, who was also the town representative to the Vermont legislature. Their father was till alive. And some of their machines are still in use, and also can be seen in many agricultural museums: i.e. Shelburne Museum, Billings Farm & Museum, Coopers Town, etc. David P. Wright writes on 2010-03-20: This is the A.W. Gray's sons "horsepower factory" on South St. where horespower treadmills, threshers and other machines were made thru 1918. demolished 1938. Eugene W. Gray was not a son of A W Gray, nor a partner. He was a competitior.
